The Faculty is for people who want to keep learning. It’s a loose umbrella of events and courses for people who want to expand their horizons and learn new skills. Our new partnership with Blick Studios and Infinite Jest is only a few months old but most of our events are selling out. It seems that just because you’ve left […]
Nietzsche once proclaimed that God was dead….
…But he also noted that the shadow of this dead god remained fixed on the wall of secular culture. Unlike people who celebrated the decline of church life, he claimed that the most vocal despisers of religion were actually still far too religious. Does this seem familiar?
While people might have let go of God as the means of finding wholeness, meaning and harmony, they were still trapped in the gravitational pull of these ideas. They were still evangelists, preaching the good news that ones religious impulses could be satisfied in the market place. One sovereignty simply replaced by another.
In this lecture Belfast born, LA based writer and philosopher Peter Rollins will use psychoanalytic theory and existential philosophy to critique the prophets of New Atheism for not going far enough. Instead he will propose a more far-reaching and truly disturbing vision.
So you think you’re an atheist? Are you ready to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes?
The Faculty seemed like the perfect excuse to start a film club, something we’ve been thinking about since we started, and after a pub conversation with local film maker Phil Harrison here we are. The Faculty Film Club will show movies that will stir the recesses of your brain and have you chatting over the movie long after the credits […]
Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the year it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and have a laugh over a few pints. We scan all the sketches and […]

Right guys it’s Small Business Saturday so we’ve got our Small Business Santa Blog. As a small business we’re all about trying to support some small businesses and this year we’ve been making a deliberate effort to spend less money in big corporations and more in local business. Among the many joys that this has given us it has lead […]
This morning I got onto an argument on twitter with a young lady who was suggesting that in the current climate she didn’t believe in funding the arts. An 11-15% cut isn’t enough for her obviously, she wants to stop funding the arts altogether… cause y’know, the health service and that. To be fair I kind of lost the rag […]

Dear Minister, I am writing to express my deep concern about the recent axing of the Northern Ireland Events Fund. As a freelance event professional my work with organisations such as Culture Night Belfast, Cathedral Quarter Arts […]
On Arts Extra last night about 15 min in someone called Fionuala Meridith, when talking about Belfast Festival at Queens, said this… ‘We’re talking about so called high arts, high culture… the tendency locally and politically is to place the emphasis on social inclusion, accessibility, relevance, mass appeal – that’s all fine but I do think they’re right to try […]
